the 3 big torrent sites I use to find SB's or MTX's are >>

https://bt.etree.org -
https://shnflac.net - Free Registration, it's worth it
https://www.dimeadozen.org - ditto

You may want to avoid thepiratebay.org
They have many Dicks & Dave's picks, Europe 72 The Complete Recordings, Fillmore West 1969 The Complete Recordings, The Road Trips & Download Series and many bonus disc's - all in flac.
A grate many there are illegal torrents

then again, if Dead.Net/Rhino had released Fillmore '69 and Europe '72 in sufficient quantities, people (who weren't lucky enough to get official examples) wouldn't be faced with that dilemma.

At the end of the day, what's the difference in getting a copy of 1st March 1969 from bt.tree/Lossless Legs or getting it from Pirate Bay ?

How can you say they didn't release E72 in sufficient quantities? They sold out the box, then released a music only version and then released the shows individually and those are still available!

I am not against sharing commercially released music. I just have issues with doing it en masse like pirate bay. I do feel like that is not really in the spirit of sharing music in a way that is fair to the musicians, especially these musicians who have share sooooo much with their fans. I have sent copies of plenty of commercial releases, which i purchased, to people i am friends with, so they can enjoy them personally. I think that is quite different than sharing indiscriminately with the world. So i guess for me, i will stick with my bt.tree/LL copy of 3-1-69. It doesn't suck. If one day someone gifts me a copy of the commercial release, then i will enjoy that too, but i have no intention of acquiring it illegally.

I do appreciate that dead.net/GDP has not made it easy for people who aren't in the US to purchase these items since they insist on CD releases so I do understand that your situation is very different than mine.

well Jerry said when they're done with the music we could have it. how can they not be done with it now? esp. those not with us in the material world.

as for other right-claimers, they are not following the testator's unambiguous stated intent, and so I feel legally secure and righteous in doing as JC directed, speaking o/b/o himself, the band, ice-nine, rhino, and all other heirs, assigns, licensees and BF purchasers, named and unnamed, born and unborn, forever into perpetuity.

Hi Elb,

I was really talking about the "Fillmore '69" box set but, re: E72, I'd throw this in:

You have 3 choices:

1) You're one of the lucky ones and get the boxed set: all the CDs in digipacks, the trunk with your 'deadication' on it, plus the two books - the b & w 'Book of the Dead' and the colour 'Ice-Cream Kid' book of photos.

2) You didn't make the cut and so you can pay the same price as the box set but only get the CDs (in digipacks) i.e. no trunk and no books.

3) You can download the music (lossless) and the artwork for free from Pirate Bay ............ for free.

If I was unsuccessful in getting the 'Full Monty' (box set, trunk and books) I'd probably go for the free (Pirate Bay) option, rather than pay the full price for only part of the package. But that's just my choice - you have yours and I have mine. I respect yours and I hope you respect mine i.e. no issues.

Incidentally (#1) not you, but some have suggested that Pirate Bay sell the stuff - they don't, it's free. They make their money from all the (annoying) advertising on their site - you know: links to Social Networking and Dating sites (oh to be young, free and single again !).

Incidentally (#2) I thought CDs lasted forever, but no. I took the Eagles debut CD (inc. "Take It Easy") out of the rack the other day. I noticed some dark spots on it so held it up to the light - the aluminium (English spelling!) had started to deteriorate and, although the plastic was intact, the aluminium layer had more holes in it than a colander. No surprises but I replaced it with a lossless copy from Pirate Bay - already had the case so didn't have to print a new one !

Keep on Truckin'
